Writely Goes Google

I briefly reviewed Writely, the web word processor, a few couple of months ago in one of my blog posts. Quite recently, it appears that Google has acquired the company that develops Writely. I think that means we can expect great things to come with the development of Writely on Google’s scale. I can’t wait for Writely’s popularity to grow to become popular like Gmail 😉 Writely blog post Google’s blog post

Writely – The Web Word Processor

While I was reading some stuff on the internet about Web 2.0, I came across Writely – The Web Word Processor. “Simple & secure document collaboration and publishing.” This is no ordinary word processor. It’s not even a downloadable program. Writely is an online word processor that you can access from anywhere through any compatible web browser (IE 5.5+, Firefox 1.0.6+, Mozilla 1.4+) that has cookies and Javascript enabled.

MyBB Development Update

MyBB development is going slowly (at least for me right now since it’s a busy time for me). It’s great that Kilroy has recently joined our team. Hopefully we can push MyBB 1.0 out the door sooner, since we started beta testing PR1 in the early months of this year. Chris showed me the layout of the new Admin CP design that will be included in the next version of MyBB after 1.0, and I assure you it looks very good. I can’t wait for it to be released and I’m sure you can’t too.

MsgPlus wins over Microsoft Antispyware

Although I don’t use Microsoft Antispyware, I am a big fan of MsgPlus and I have been using it since the late versions of MsgPlus 1. It’s great to see the MsgPlus community bunching up and convincing the Microsoft Antispyware team to think second thoughts about blocking MsgPlus. Patchou, the developer behind MsgPlus, has done a great job developing one of, if not the most popular addon to MSN Messenger. If you haven’t tried MsgPlus, I recommend you try it immediately: http://www.msgplus.net. It will definitely improve your MSN Messenger experience.
